Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Interesting collection of short stories that blend fact and fiction about various people / places in Indiana. Growing up here in the state, this compilation of stories really intrigued me. However, I wasn't a big fan of the author's actual writing styles, leading me to downgrade the rating.
